The English Golf Union (EGU) has announced a new sponsorship deal with Approved Golf Properties.

As part of the agreement Approved Golf Properties will become the title sponsor of The Brabazon Trophy. The Brabazon Trophy is one of the EGU’s most prestigious championships and Approved Golf Properties will the inaugural sponsor for the event.

Approved Golf Properties offers an overseas property service established to ensure safety and security for clients looking for golfing properties worldwide. The service was set up by the company’s parent company, Approved Properties Abroad, to provide golfers with a dedicated service to find and purchase overseas golf property with complete peace of mind.

Gary Dalton, marketing director at Approved Golf Properties commented, “We are delighted to be working with the English Golf Union and to be the first sponsor of such an important event in the golfing calendar. Our relationship with the EGU provides us with the opportunity to inform golfers of our Safe Buying Environment and that, as a result, buying abroad can be a secure and simple process, whilst at the same time allowing us to contribute to the wider grass roots of golf.”

The Brabazon Trophy is being played at Trevose Golf and Country Club, Cornwall from the 14th to 18th May and brings together all of the top amateur men’s golfers from around the world. Previous winners include Sandy Lyle, Mark Foster and Ronan Rafferty and the event has provided a great springboard for many a professional career.

Lynne Fraser, the EGU’s marketing & pr manager, added, “Having Approved Golf Properties as the title sponsor for the Brabazon Trophy is a great first for the EGU. It is a real boost to have new support for grassroots golf and if we can make golfers, who are considering buying property abroad, aware that the process can be secure and simple, that is an added benefit.”

There is no charge to attend the Brabazon Trophy and both the EGU and Trevose are encouraging visitors to attend the event, which provides a great opportunity to see the highest quality of play from future world stars.
